What Are Animals Thinking?

Leave a comment

The mind of an animal is a far richer, more complex thing than most people know — as a new TIME book reveals. Let’s be honest, you’d probably rather die than wake up tomorrow morning and find out you’d turned into an animal. Dying, after all, is inevitable, and there’s even a certain dignity to it: Shakespeare did it, Einstein did it, Galileo and Washington and Twain all did it. And you, someone who was born a human and will live your life as a human, will end your life that way too.

Nothing can match the love of a devoted dog.  This cute pup was overwhelmed with joy after seeing her owner for the first time in two years — so excited, in fact, that she briefly passed out like a teenager seeing the Beatles in the ’60s.  Don’t worry, though; the dog’s owner, Rebecca Ehalt, says that the dog was checked out by a vet and is completely fine.
